Share iTunes library with OS X and Windows via a server
Authored by: vb on Apr 26, '07 11:09:29AM
If your only interested in listening to your music from multiple computers (but not copying music to an ipod or burning CDs or whatever), then the solution that seems to have worked better for me personally is to use a daapd server on a Linux box. I use mt-daapd

<a href="http://wiki.mt-daapd.org/wiki/Main_Page">http://wiki.mt-daapd.org/wiki/Main_Page</a>; for more info

on my linux workstation at work and use iTunes on my personal PowerBook G4 to play shared music from the daapd server. Also, my colleagues are able to listen to my shared music in iTunes or any other daap-compatible client (like VLC, RhythmBox, or Amarok just to name a few).

All I do is use an alias to the itunes folder on my server and locate the alias in my music folder.
